This Atari 2600 game is like Pole Position on steroids. It is a very long distance driving game, (with cars, not motorcycles). Gameplay and graphics are very similar to Pole Position, but instead of trying to get a good time, you are trying to pass as many other cars as possible. This is a very fun game.

From the instruction manual:
HOW TO BECOME A "ROADBUSTER"
Tips from Larry Miller, designer of Enduro

Larry Miller is a powerhouse game designer with a PhD in
physics. When he isn't designing games, he may be sailing,
skiing or playing the piano. His most recent hit was Spider Fighter.

"The best way to outlast other drivers is to pace yourself.
You won't survive long if you stay at maximum speed because
you'll keep hitting the other cars. Go only as fast as it
takes to pass the required number of cars each day.

"If you can choose between steering into the side of the road
or hitting another car, always steer into the roadside. It's
just a minor setback, and you won't lose as much time.

"Also, it's always better to go around diagonally paired cars
than to squeeze between them. But, if you must squeeze between
them, keep your speed just above theirs and be careful!

"Here's another tip; If you approach a group of cars that are
really blocking the road - slow down. Let them disappear back
into the distance ahead of you. Then, accelerate. When you
meet up with these cars again, they will have probably changed
their positions.

"I hope you enjoy the National Enduro as much as I enjoyed
designing it. Drop me a card from your next pit stop - I'd
love to hear from you. And please, remember to fasten your
seatbelts
."

This game is valued at around $2 USD. Games with boxes and manuals are worth more.

Enduro bikes are similar to motocross bikes, but because their purpose is survive the wilderness more than motocross bikes (which are used on a closed course) they have the following distinguishing features:
